  1. Pingback: Raleigh Women-Owned Small Businesses - What's On In Raleigh

  2. Hi guys! I know that you mainly focus on downtown, but Relish Craft Kitchen and Bourbon Bar is a woman owned restaurant. She also owns The Kitchen Table next door to Relish… we would love to be included in this list. Sharon May is the owner and has been involved in restaurants in the area for 40 years.

    1. We cover all areas of Raleigh and will add Relish to the list! Thanks!

  3. Crude Bitters and The Bittery is also 50% woman owned. (I’m the woman 😊)

  4. Slingshot Coffee Co. and it’s new sister brand, Needs & Wants, is woman-owned, woman-founded and woman-led.

  5. Hi,
    I started M & M Tack Shop over 30 years ago. We are located near the NC State Fairgrounds, Carter-Finley Stadium and RBC Center.
    I also employ 4 women full time and 5 women part time.
    We sell horseback riding apparel and equipment.

  6. I love that this list was complied but sadly, there are numerous women owned businesses that are missing here.

    1. Please let us know what we missed and we will add them to the list!

  7. Yoga Soullective on W Martin Street downtown is co-owned by two powerhouse female yogis! Definitely worth including them 😀

    yogasoullective.com

  8. Perhaps I missed it on the list, but Escazu Chocolate Shop is women owned.

  9. Would love to get DICED on that list! They are a woman-owned fast-casual restaurant serving healthy salads, wraps, and bowls. Located at the Oberlin Ct Apartments in Raleigh, in addition to their two Cary locations 🙂
